Heated Power Flow


This class is taught by:

JOANNA WILSON

Yoga Teacher

Joanna joined the Thunderbolt Power Yoga team in 2016, after completing her 200-hour training at Carly Grace Power Yoga School.
Inspired by creative expression, physical challenges, meditation and the little things that make life full, Joanna teaches because it allows her to share these inspirations with fellow yogis. In each class, she strives to provide her students with the joy of getting of lost in the flow - the same meditation and movement she seeks in each of her own practices.
When asked what she likes most about Thunderbolt, Joanna said the pervasive positive, supportive energy. Thunderbolt, to Joanna, is a space that makes it easy to try and fail again and again - because that is the only way to grow.
A Florida native, Joanna received her undergraduate degree from the University of Florida before getting her MFA in Ceramics at Georgia State University. She and her husband Scott now live in Brookhaven. Catch Joanna teaching throughout the week and when not in the studio, follow her on Instagram and Spotify - Joanna Stecker Wilson.

DARBY STANTON

Yoga Teacher
 
Darby Stanton joined the Thunderbolt Power Yoga team in 2017 after graduating from the Carly Grace Power Yoga School.

Darby was introduced to yoga while she was studying music at Auburn University. She was intrigued by yoga and the stark contrast that existed between her strict music practice and playful yoga practice. Not long after practicing, Darby discovered that the benefits of practicing yoga reached far beyond the physical asana; she craved the connection between body, mind, and spirit.

Inspired by taking risks and the opportunity to learn, Darby loves teaching because it allows her to help her students to feel good, not only physically but mentally and because she gets to help her students become their most authentic selves.

After graduating with her music degree, Darby moved back to Atlanta to be close to her family in Alpharetta. Keep up with Darby on Instagram and Spotify - Darby Stanton.

John’s yoga journey began in May of 2015 after a ruptured Achilles injury. Teaching, leadership development, and community are passions for JW (Jay Dub). And now those are being lived out in a new venue…on a yoga mat within the TPY Studio.

CHARLOTTE KILBOURN

Assistant Manager, Senior Yoga Teacher
 
Thunderbolt Power Yoga’s self-proclaimed “awkward ninja warrior,” Charlotte Kilbourn can be spotted all over the studio. Assistant manager, client relations manager and a senior yoga teacher, Charlotte helps keep the studio running and brings smiles and laughs as bright as her hair to everyone at the same time.

She’s inspired by her pups’ ability to live in the present and the optimism, unconditional love, passion and commitment of her family, boyfriend and yoga students, and her favorite thing about teaching yoga is reminding her students to let each day’s practice whatever it needs to be. Charlotte thinks of yoga as a permission slip of sorts – permission for things to be messy – but also permission to be fully present in life’s messes and to find a way to dance through life’s messes with your own awkward grace and own each moment – messy or not.

Charlotte completed her 200-hour training at Konalani Yoga Ashram in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, before taking Laughing Lotus’ 50-hour super sequencing training in New York.

A Florida native and Oglethorpe University graduate, Charlotte moved to Atlanta in 2005 and currently lives in West End with her boyfriend Luke and two dogs, Olive and Blinkin.

Catch her in the studio throughout the week, and follow along with snaps of her life on Instagram and her favorite tunes on Spotify at @charlotte.kilbourn. Don’t forget to “be brave, be weird, be unequivocally you.”

Yoga Teacher

Lynn joined the Thunderbolt Power Yoga teaching staff in 2015 after graduating from the Carly Grace Power Yoga School. Also trained in Yin, Yoga for Trauma, the Baptiste Art of Assisting and Advanced Art of Assisting, Lynn brings a wealth of knowledge to each class she teaches.

Inspired by the Thunderbolt community’s passion for practice and change, she is most excited by watching students, whether brand new or experienced, let go of their fears and tackle new poses. A big proponent for understanding yoga to its fullest, Lynn continually studies all aspects of yoga - philosophy, anatomy, history, different styles, etc. - and encourages her students to do the same.
An Atlanta native, Lynn received her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and her MBA from Georgia Tech. When not teaching, Lynn leads a digital marketing team for a large software company and in her free time, can often be found with Winston, her 14 year-old rescue dog.

CARLY GRACE MILYO

Founder and director of Thunderbolt Power Yoga®

Carly grew up in Atlanta and attended The Westminster Schools and Virginia Tech, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude.

During college, she began practicing yoga to escape her intense cheerleading training; a desire to find more purposeful friendships and cultivate a greater well-being kept her coming back. After a lifetime of perfection-based sports, yoga was the first thing Carly practiced where a perfect-ten mentality wasn’t required, and she delighted in yoga’s celebration of imperfection.

At only 24, she opened Thunderbolt as a community-based studio where instructors practice with each other, students make friends, and yogis count on clean spaces and familiar faces.

As a YA 200 E-RYT, Carly’s studied and practiced with influencers and teachers across the country. In addition to teaching, she leads Carly Grace Power Yoga RYS Trainings, and generates content for her lifestyle/wellness blog, carlygraceyoga.com.

When teaching, she encourages people to move like themselves, helps students be audaciously playful in their practices and lives, and hopes to inspire the “be for one another” mentality that shapes her business.

Meet Carly for a sweaty, soul-drenched class, say “hello” on Instagram @carlygraceyoga, and tune in for her online yoga classes, launching soon!

A graduate of the Carly Grace Yoga School, Terri Schmidt-Fellner joined the Thunderbolt Power Yoga team in Fall 2017. Drawn to the studio by its happy, welcoming environment, Terri’s classes are inspired by the power of positive thinking, with the hopes that students will see the incredible role positivity can play both in their practice and outside the studio.

A Nashville native and Vanderbilt University graduate, Terri left home for Atlanta right after college and now lives in Buckhead with her husband, three boys and two dogs.

KELLI SULLIVAN

Yoga Teacher

Kelli joined the Thunderbolt Power Yoga team in 2017 after completing her 200-hour training at Core Power Yoga and a three-month mentoring program with Thunderbolt.
Between working a rigorous full-time job and being a full-time mama, Kelli’s day-to-day life doesn’t leave a lot of time for balance. Enter yoga; through her practice, Kelli has created a space for balance and through teaching she’s able to share that with others; creating a kind, fun-loving, energetic space for her students.
Ask Kelli what she loves most about being a yoga instructor, and she’ll tell you that yoga helped make her a better mother, wife and friend. That teaching yoga allows her the creative space to approach the world in a kinder, more patient and understanding way and to help her students do the same - by harnessing their own inner child and grace for themselves to find the skills they need to manage their lives in a more positive way.
An Atlanta native, Kelli graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder and moved back to Atlanta in 2007. Today, she lives near Chastain Park with her husband, their three children, Skylar, Gracyn and Ryder, and Bear, their beloved puppy. When not teaching, practicing or working, you’ll often find Kelli outside, spending time with her family and friends on the lake or at their brewery SteadyHand; no matter what, you’ll always find her listening to music. Keep up with Kelli on Instagram and Spotify - Kelli Ashkouti Sullivan - and check out her class soon!
